Connection to Jira with jdk version 1.5

I try to make a connection to Jira

My Code:
JiraRestClientFactory restClientFactory = new AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory();
JiraRestClient restClient = restClientFactory.createWithBasicHttpAuthentication(uri, user, password);

I have the following error:

javax.servlet.ServletException: Servlet execution threw an exception
root cause
java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file (unable to load class

I use these libs (and the needed dependencies):

I use in my project the jdk version 1.5. What is the required jdk version for the class 'AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory()'?
Exists a other possibility to connect with Jira (with jdk 1.5)? I use the class 'AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory()', because the class 'JerseyJiraRestClientFactory' ist not included (tutorial).

Currently the most recent versions of JIRA will run on JDK 1.6 and 1.7. 1.5 is no longer used, neither supported for a while already.
